Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office announced on Twitter yesterday, “14 arrests involving major auto insurer & 2 of their claims adjusters allegedly helping to mastermind & perpetrate the fraud.”
According to the SAO, “Miami-Dade’s law enforcement partnership between my office &
@JimmyPatronis Division of Investigative & Forensic Services Bureau of Insurance Fraud should have insurance scammers worried sick. Commit insurance fraud & you will be wearing handcuffs. Count on it!”
The @KathyFndzRundle Twitter account also reads, “Proud of my prosecutors Jennie Conklin & Laura Uriarte’s work on massive insurance fraud case resulting in 14 arrests involving major auto insurer & 2 of their claims adjusters allegedly helping to mastermind & perpetrate the fraud.”
The scheme allegedly used the same vehicles in repeated crashes to claim and collect insurance money.
Same vehicles in multiple crashes? Sounds like just another day driving in the streets of Miami.
The office lauded the full cooperation of the insurance company, saying, “GEICO reps fully cooperated with us in this investigation from the very beginning & their support & information was invaluable to our team in dismantling these fraudsters & their scams in a relatively short period of time.”
Premiums remain unaffected.
There was a press conference where major stations showed up to record the news and now it’s on Google Maps too.
Stay tuned for more news from Felony Miami.
